The new council is made up of the American Gem Society (AGS), Diamond Council of America (DCA), Diamond Bourse of Southeast United States (DBSE), Diamond Dealers Club of New York (DDC), Diamond Manufacturers & Importers Association of America (DMIA), Indian Diamond and Colored Stone Association (IDCA), Jewelers of America (JA), Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA) and the Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA).
